well hillo.
i am a new member to craftster although i have been lurking for months. i don't know why i just didn't join, as it practically changed my life! i have always sewn and crafted, but not so much since i got married several years ago. everybody's projects here have inspired me to start crafting again!

so i present my first amigurumi (excluding a caterpillar i made 5 1/2 years ago, and a turquoise "bird" that was really just a glorified stess ball). i really didn't know they were called that until i was trying to find a crochet pattern online, the same day i found craftster  Grin

here they are:

my first (good) ami, a little cup of coffee, because i am addicted. also acrylic yarn.

a second cup of coffee for my cousin, also addicted, also acrylic.

this pattern is from Ana Paula Rimoli's blog . they look different because i didn't know what i was doing, lol.

i'm glad i did this finally.
sorry to blow it up in here, it's my first post!
comments welcome and appreciated.

Really cute amis! They look great! And these are the first few you've done? Wow.
Btw, I know what you mean about coffee addictions *sips coffee in hand*.  Wink
